Our Democratic exchanges nre
full of the comings and goings of
Democratic candidates those
days, and it will o continue un

that there wont be half so many

How often we notice persons
drive up to a hitching post, hitch
their horses with a halter good
and st rong, and never once think
of relieving the poor animal's
.neck by unhitching the check
rein. We have noticed horses
left in this condition for hours,
while their owners were shop
ping or visiting, turning their
heads nnd necks any and every
way they pleased with ease and
comfort. We sometimes wish
the owners of the poor faithful
servants had to hold their heads
in some unnatural position for
the same length of time so they
could learn how it pes to be tor
tured in the neck. Did you ev
er hold your head in an unnatur
al position for a long time and
learn how the leaders in your
neck hurt? Jutt try it some
Keep Your BUlrt On.
We trust our great and good
friends of the Republican Press
will not tear the only shirt they
have off their back on account of
recent rulings of the Postoftiee
Department as to continuance m
office. These things have hap
pened before and like Jonah's
gourd vine have withered in a
day, that is.with the officers who
puts them in force. President
Hayes was the first to try
the thing on but when he went
out of office the men who held of
fice under him went with him.
President Cleveland was the next
one, and his Postmaster General
had to invent the term "offensive
prrtisanship" to get rid of the
pressure, so he could "turn the
rascals out" and they got them
out. When Harrison came in he
simply went back to the custom
of the nation from its foundation
and put his Republican friends
in office. When Mr. Cleveland
succeeded him, you heard no
more about, "offensive partisan,"
or "turning the rascals out."
He just simply followed the cus
tom of his party and put his
Democratic friends in office and
just before the expiration of his
term tried to secure them in
their places by extending civil
service over several thousand of
them, but it didn't work.
President Mclvinley put his
Republican friends in and turned
Mr. Cleveland's friends out, ex
cept M r. Cortelyou. V suggest
tiiat our friends keep their eye
glued on that word "excellent"
and see wliat comes out of it.
As long as a chief magistrate has
the jniwer of appointment, these
things will come and go possibly
gradually increasing the power
of the officer making the appoint
ments. The only w ay to check or
curtail this power is to make the
offices elective us most of theui
ouglit to be,. Excellent is a
mighty gxd word, and an excel
lent officer is a superior one, no
other like him, there art1 no ob
jections, complaints or faults to
be found against him. How long
will it be before Postmaster gen
eral Cortelyou will have more
criticisms of his iot masters
than he can find pigeoii holes
for? He will oon begin to think
there's not an "excellent" one in
the country except here and
there an Elkins that spurkles
like a "gfin of purest ray e
rone" uuioijg the host of mud

ly Reports are sent out this time.
These reports have already ac
complished all. that Was desir
ed of them this year, hence they
are discontinued for the remain
der of the school year. It will
be necessary, however, for teach
ers to hold the quarterly exami
nations and to keep the Class
lieeord as part of the permanent
records of the schools. The
Register shows the attendance
and punctuality; the Class Roc-
ord shows the scholarship. To
gether they furnish a complete
record of the work of the school.
It would be more convenient,
perhaps, to have only one book
to show this complete record. I
think the Missouri School Reg
ister does this.
COCNTY GRADUATION ONCE MORE
Parents, as well a pupils, are
interested in County Graduate m
A large majority of our sc1k!s
have pupils who intend to take
the county examinations next
spring. Are you getting your
pupils ready for these examina
tions? Do not neglect Literature
and some work in Agriculture.
It is proper to urge pupils to
finish the Course of Study. Per
haps a gtxxlly number of those
who graduate from the rural
schools will attend some god
high school. If teachers can in
duce pupils to go on to higher
and better things, they are doing
a good work.

If so, well n ml good. If not. why
not? I hope that every teacher In
the county will feel the duty ami the
responsibility of starting n library

know that school hoards nre often
backward aUuit dolus anything In
this way; but sometime It U neeer
sury for the teacher to take the Ini
tiative and tind the means. Sevetnl
teachers have done well In this mat

can do. If the school board wont

a library or add a few volumns to
the one already started. A few

Invaluable service towards strength
ening mid enriching the class work.
Then they furnish the means for
good reading both fortius pupils and
for the parent at home. 1 do not
wish to appear too Insistent In this
matter: lint I know that the library
movement will greatly Improve the
